Irish green under gray

Our family trip to Ireland and Scotland was a lot of fun and a wonderful time.  After two days of adventures in Dublin we drove to Kilkenny to enjoy the town and castle for two days.  On our drive back to Dublin, we took back roads and on N81 came upon River Liffey.  The clouds and their reflection on the water were gray, the grass on the hillside was lush, and where sunlight shone through it lit up the green hillside beautifully.

A new favorite spot up north along the Lake Huron shoreline.  Secluded and quiet.  This sapling pine tree growing in the beach sand, eventually to do its part to extend the pine forest closer to the water’s edge.  For now, basking in the fall sun to store strength ahead of the pending winter.
